Are you happy that Germany are out? "Like this they deserve to be out and I say this as a German fan".

The team did not make a hard push to trade for him previous year because of that thought, which could now backfire in more ways than one. Team doctors cleared Leonard to play late in the season, but he chose to sit out until being medically cleared by his personal medical team and representatives.

If both teams finish with the same number of bookings, then lots will be drawn to decide the final positions. "Now we need to look into our individual players.

Wimbledon made Williams the 25th seed, which comes at the expense of Dominika Cibulkova , who was ranked 32nd and therefore didn't get seeded at all to make room for Williams.

Things went from bad to worse for the tournament hosts when they were reduced to 10 men when Igor Smolnikov picked up his second yellow card after 36 minutes.
